Package: bluez
Version: 4.96-3
Severity: minor

Dear Maintainer,

I was trying to get my bluetooth keyboard working with bluez from
unstable, and found http://wiki.debian.org/BluetoothUser, but this
describes old, deprecated setups.

Trying that pointed me to /usr/share/doc/bluez/NEWS.Debian.gz 
in an error message. 

There you say: "Adding new devices can be done by dropping rules into
  /etc/udev/rules.d/ similar to ones found in

except that this file does not exist (any longer?).

Putting an example somewhere, updating the Wiki to reflect current
status, or documenting it in some other way would be very helpful.
